Barcelona v Manchester City: Enhanced Odds available on both teams
The biggest tie of the week in the Champions League sees reigning La Liga champions Barcelona take on English title favourites Manchester City in the Nou Camp. Barca are odds on favourites for this tie and are many punters’ tip for an easy profit but it’s possible to get a serious boost on those odds with 888sport’s enhanced odds offer.
In fact, 888 have enhanced prices for new customers on both teams ahead of this tie with Barcelona available at 6/1 to take all three points. That’s compared to a regular price of around 4/7 with Betfred while Manchester City, who are listed by the likes of bet365 and Paddy Power at 5/1, are pushed out to a massive 18/1 under this promotion.
Shock on the Cards?
That 18/1 is a huge price but is there any chance of City causing an upset in this tie? The English side started superbly under Pep Guardiola but, after establishing a league lead with a 100% record, they have struggled in recent weeks. Defeat to Spurs and an unexpected draw with Celtic in the Champions League suggest that they are not the best option against a team as sublime as Barcelona.
However, with the prolific Sergio Aguero in their ranks, anything can happen, although if Manchester City are to cause an upset, it’s all down to the Argentinian who will need to provide the firepower.
In the Nou Camp, Luis Enrique’s Barcelona seem the logical bet but form in La Liga has been mixed to say the least. The Catalans have lost two of their opening eight matches and coming into this Champions League tie are in fourth place, two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid.
In Europe however, things are much more settled with two wins from two so far. Barca’s campaign began with a 7-0 thumping of Celtic and Enrique’s side maintained their 100% record with a 2-1 victory away to Borussia Monchengladbach.
Maybe this isn’t as clear cut as the market suggests but whatever team you side with, 888Sport’s deal gives you excellent value. Barca seem unstoppable in the Nou Camp and 6/1 is a very generous price for Lionel Messi and his team mates although you can’t ignore that incredible 18/1 on Manchester City.
Prices are available now, subject to terms and conditions, and are for all new customers so head across to 888sport and check them out.
